My name is Hananel Hazan. I am an interdisciplinary computer scientist specialized in biologically inspired computing and neurocomputation with a strong background in machine learning. Currently, I work as a Research Scientist at the Allen Discovery Center at Tufts University where I participate in various projects involving exploration of computational abilities in non-neuronal cells or other data science projects.
In my research I focus on the computational properties of neuronal and non-neuronal systems. I am using a reductional simulation to demonstrate their computational characteristics. These characteristics can help us build smarter algorithms and hopefully can advance our understanding of biological systems. Moreover, I strive to understand fundamental cognitive functions not only from the perspective of computer science and machine learning but also from the perspective of biology, neurobiology, and psychology.
